Join & visit

Ad Hoc at Orlando

From now on you are also welcome as an individual musician at Rolduc in order to actively join he Orlando Festival. Enlistment is open to all musicians of all ages, where all levels of proficiency are welcome; from beginners to experts.

Playing in an ensemble, enjoying concerts and lessons, listening to beautiful chamber music, having interesting conversations with like-minded people: young and old meet at the Orlando Festival!

All participants reside during the festival in the former abbey of Rolduc surrounded by beautiful gardens. All hotel rooms and rehearsal spaces are situated within the abbey complex.

All participants and visitors stay on the basis of full room and lodging. Everybody meets each other also during mealtimes and not only during lessons, rehearsals or concerts. This contributes greatly to the relaxing and unique Orlando atmosphere.

After the concert all the participants, visitors and musicians come together for a drink in the hotel bar of Rolduc, where you can reminisce over the concert just shared, make valuable contacts and have interesting conversations. Sometimes the musicians will spontaneously play together with the amateurs.

During the Orlando Festival you will submerge yourself in the world of chamber music. You will receive lessons during your four-day-stay in a, by us formed, ensemble. All levels of proficiency are welcome, form early beginner to experienced amateur. All we ask is a decent preparation.

Enlist before June 1st 2019 and we will place you in a suitable ensemble. We will also provide the ensemble with repertoire which you will receive prior to your arrival at Rolduc. On July the 1ste you will receive word in what kind of ensemble you have been placed.

Naturally you can visit all the activities of the festival during your stay. You can visit the master classes, workshops and lectures. Every afternoon there is a concert at Rolduc at 16.30 in the Aula Minor. In the evenings you can visit one of our evening concerts at different beautiful venues in the South of the Netherlands (all within half a hour drive of Rolduc). If you do not have your own transportation a bus is available to take you to the evening concerts (€ 2,50 p.p per concert). You can also book more days as a visitor should you want to visit more days at the festival.
